After signing a one year contract last winter, Cruz enjoyed a 40 home run season in 2014 and...

How will the O’s address the loss of Nelson Cruz?

When the Baltimore Orioles signed Nelson Cruz to a one-year, $8-million contract, they didn’t know what they were getting, and the question marks surrounding the 34-year old were the reasons for such a low contract.
